The lights are on
Robot Entertainment first came to our attention with the action-oriented tower defense title, Orcs Must Die. The studio followed up with a sequel and the iOS competitive strategy title, Hero Academy. The team's next title is out now for iOS devices.
Echo Prime is a futuristic action/RPG that fits all the conventions we expect from the genre. It looks to have lots of enemies, tons of loot, and a variety of skills. By meeting "echoes," players unlock new powers. There is a social element also, as friends can use each other's echoes for an asynchronous multiplayer experience.
You can download Echo Prime now from the App Store for $4.99. We also have a trailer below.

wtf why does this have to be 5 five bucks, i love robot entertainment and this game looks pretty fun, but no way im spending that money on a phone game
I'm thankful they didn't mention that they helped make Age of Empires Online; that game is a mix between boring game play, slow grinding, idiotic balancing, and greedy micro transactions. Why did Ensamble Studios leave us! I was ready for AoM 2 or AoE 4. Ps.- I'm its cool that Robot let the boy with brittle bones make his own character for this game, that touched my heart. :)
This looks great, but I think I may wait and see if it comes to PC before I buy it. I am interested though.
